LONDON, December 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Acne is a skin condition that affects millions of people around the world and is associated in particular with adolescence. Treatments for severe cases of acne vary widely, from preventative to acute and from topical to oral, but The Laser Treatment Clinic in London is one therapy provider offering a different route amid concern about acne drugs. Many dermatologists advise a good diet and a healthy, clean lifestyle as a means to prevent acne from occurring, but these measures are not always enough given the hormonal imbalances that are often behind outbreaks of acne. Hormonal imbalances are common during adolescence and as such the condition commonly affects young people. However, one of the drugs often used to treat acne, Roacccutane, has been linked to depression in some circles. Some experts believe Roaccutane makes young people vulnerable to further emotional difficulties, which is why modern alternatives like laser acne treatment are becoming more sought after. The Laser Treatment Clinic is keen to encourage people to look elsewhere for effective acne therapy if they have experienced limited success with preventative measures and topical treatments and if they are concerned about the side-effects of strong oral medications. The Laser Treatment Clinic is based on Harley Street in London and boasts more than 12 years' experience in treating skin conditions like acne using modern laser technology. Lasers have proven extremely successful in acne therapy in recent times and the technicians and medical specialists at The Laser Treatment Clinic are experts in their field. The Laser Treatment Clinic is currently running a promotion in order to make more people aware of laser treatment for a whole host of skin conditions, from hair removal and tattoo removal, to treatment for sun damage and acne therapy. The promotion enables patients to receive a 50 per cent discount on many of the courses offered. Those particularly concerned about the latest Roaccutane controversy are invited to get in touch and learn more about laser treatment as a safe alternative.
